Such an incredible space! Photos just really don't even do justice to the surrounding hills. Golden hour was epic and the hosts were lovely and super helpful. Hope to shoot here again sometime. Thanks so much!

Anya H. booked a party for 24 people
We hosted a small celebration after our wedding ceremony at the Gesner Cocoon, and it was absolutely amazing!! After an intimate beach ceremony, we headed to The Cocoon for a relaxed night of celebrating. The ambience was exactly what we wanted -- outdoors with twinkle lights and amazing views, a cozy bonfire and space for mingling and eating. Dinner and s'mores around the bonfire was such a great experience! Lisa and Jim were so helpful throughout the night and lovely to work with. Our guests kept telling us how incredible the space was, and wanting to know how we found it! This place really is a gem and I couldn't be happier that we celebrated our marriage here. Highly recommend it!

Kathleen A. booked an event for 30 people
This Space is Magical. I am delighted to have this beautiful Cocoon as part of my life time memory of the engagement celebration of my daughter and son-in-law to be. The space held 40 people perfectly for yoga and the owners have 5 amazing Boho tables and twinkle lighting to add to the magic! The fire pit was perfect for after dinner gathering! Jim and Lisa assisted us every step of the way!! This could be an annual event. Very Happy to have experience the space. Namaste, Kathy
Patty B. booked an event for 60 people
the experience was absolutely horrific Lisa is most inappropriate unprofessional person I have ever met with I am still waiting for the refund for the Labyrinth that was ruined by her dog that should have never been at my event and for the jacuzzi that I advertised and they promised would be working and wasn't! at the end of the event Lisa completely lost it and cursed my husband out in front of all of my guests! I'm absolutely disgusted by the experience and the fact that they have gotten paid and I still haven't gotten any of my refunds!
